The purpose of this program is to prevent and treat chronic/severe emotional and psychiatric disorders. It is the belief of the Health Department and Community Health Center that quality mental health care is a necessary part of total health care and should be readily accessible to all Lake County residents. Family involvement with treatment, when clinically helpful to a client's progress, is encouraged.
Services in this program include diagnostic evaluation, psychiatric assessment, and crisis intervention to adults who have a history of chronic mental illness. Clients who receive our psychiatric medication services may also qualify for individual and/or group psychotherapy, depending on the type of funding the client has.
